What followed was a snap protest resulting in chaos at Flinders Street station and the operation eventually being cancelled amid criticism that the operation was a step too far. I covered this event in collaboration with my colleague Katie Coulthard and have included some of my tweets and video footage below. You can read the rest of our coverage here and here.
